BASIC PHOTOGRAPHY

Wed., Feb. 9-Mar. 16, 6-7:20 pm / $149 / Six Classes Instructor: John Engleman
In-person at VPC Campus

Today’s digital cameras can seem overwhelmingly complex. In this course, we spend plenty of time discussing camera operation and how to take advantage of the features provided. Most importantly, we will explore what makes a good photograph. Subjects such as composition, selective focus, exposure, and lighting combined with a better understanding of camera controls can open a whole new world of image-making. Each week includes appropriate assignments, and you will be encouraged to share your images with the class. Students of all skill levels are welcome. We suggest you bring a DSLR or an advanced point-and-shoot camera. This class features interactive demos and a field trip, weather permitting.
